onboard hair/make-up

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am trying to get some feedback from past cruisers that may have used the spa service on their ship!  I am planning my wedding on the 7day mexican riviera Feb 2011 and I am having a hard time making a decision on if I should take the chance using the spa service that the ship provides.  I am having my wedding In Puerto Vallarta so I have time to use a local service when I get there, the only problem is, if it doesnt turn out, I am SOL..I figured when I arrive on the ship on Sunday, I can go straight to the spa service and do a "trial"run.  If all turns out well then I can use them the day of my wedding.  Obviously this makes more sense but I dont know how well their services are.  Has anyone used the spa services before?  If so, how was your experience and were you satisfied?

 

Thanks for the help :)

i have been trolling these destination/cruise wedding boards, and one thing i have NOT once seen is that someone was disappointed in their hair done by the spa. everyone has had nothing but good things to say.

 

i think you have a great plan to do a trial run with the spa. maybe you could do the trial run on the first formal night and look great for dinner!

I was a bridesmaid for a girlfriend's wedding last year on a Princess cruise. We never did a trial run, and the salon did a fabulous job on our hair.  I would not hesitate to go that way, and then you don't have to worry about finding someone at the port. Here's a photo of my hair, sorry it's not a great shot. It was really windy, so I asked for a low bun slightly off to the side. I think it came out really well, and it held!PB176913.JPGPB176938a.jpgHere's the bride's hair. Keep in mind her hair is barely chin length, and they made it look like it was a mile long the way the hair stylist wrapped each piece.

 

Hope that helps! Good luck.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
